of the more mature companies. >> what matters is if you create an environment for people to invest in the united states. the last several administrations i went to washington if intel is going to build this next major manufacturing facility the net present value of the facility in a u.s. compared to a lower corporate tax environment is $ billion. it's a tough sell to be patriotic and have that facility in the u.s. cut the corporate tax rate down to a competitive level. i think technology will continue to advance. the problem is keeping the good ideas in the u.s. and create jobs. >> it can happen in spite of things or you can help or be sort of in the way? >> or you can facilitate for an economy which is growing. what we do with foreign graduate students, taxpayer money pays to educate them to get thai masters and ph.d.s and tech topics and our immigration policy says go home. it's a brilliant philosophy. >> you said the growth in intel will be abroad. whatever the tax policy is, i imagine you have to go abroad on manufacturing and engineering. you want to go to the customer. even i
are taking risks. >> oh, sure, in this environment, i mean, you know, we're watching liquidity like a hawk because there's great sense tomorrow morning it could go the other way, in effect you don't invest as much, you don't take as much risk. >> how would you counter the argument that businesspeople and the wealthy have had their way for the past 2030-years as they've increased their lead in terms of income disparity and gotten richer and richer, and you would have hoped that some of that would have trickled down, if it works you would have hoped the average person would have participated in the good times and haven't and you need a president that is going to come in for the powerless people that aren't able to set policy and pay to go do things and you need someone that will represent them in the future. how was is that pretty damned good? >> yes, sir. >> you can take this. thank you for writing it for me. >> i'll get you a job at "the new york times." the reality is as follows. the whole focus has been on how the quote, one percenters or ten percenters, how the top earners moved ahead o
understands how to create an environment for jobs so we can help families and make life work for people again. that's really what we're talking about. >> eric, whoever wins, do they have a mandate, if the president is reelected, is that a mandate for saying yes, we go forward with health care and forward with the tax plan? >> i this i there's no question that this is a mandate on whether you think government needs more tax dollars right now or we need to address the situation of the spending and n inc incurrence of more debt. we need to find a way to come together and have to act like folks do and their families and businesses and say normal reasonable people can disagree but let's find ways to work together and set aside those disagreements. >> if the president is reelected, how do you work with him and what is the proposal that's put on the table to try and move forward at some point? >> again in the hypothetical, if the president is reelected, i do think that he said he's not signing a bill that will keep taxes and the rates where they are. now we'll have to see what kind of sort of growt

it in this environment. i'd like to see us do whatever we're going to do -- >> the world's gotten a lot more dang ruerous in the last month. >> it is but we're coming out two of wars thate expen expensive, so i think you have to play with the whole deck of cards. in the long run we ought to change our tax system dramatically. i don't think we can do that in the short run. in the long run i'd love to see us go to encouraging savings and investment, some type of consumption tax at the income tax level. >> is anyone going into politics with a full deck of cards? >> well, increasingly no. >> marty, i want to just speak to one issue which is globalization in the whole tax debate during the commercial break, joe and i were talking about revenues, percentage of gdp and given the economic uncertainty and the economic headwinds we've had over the past three or four years but how much, when you think about the little revenue that we're bringing or a lot less revenue we're bringing in, how much of that is a function of just straight up the economy and how much of that is globalization? >> oh, it's not globalization
